Note to self: Wednesdays are course maintenance days, apparently, and don't get stuck between impatient member groups. Fairways were well maintained and greens rolled true, as evidenced by real time work of crewmembers on every other hole. Bunkers were still wet from rain a few days ago, as were areas with thicker rough or more shade. Practice facility is one of the best in Austin, public or uber private.

Falconhead can be described as a hill country gem. Set amongst a very nice Austin neighborhood, the views of spectacular homes along with the hill country is simply spectacular. Carts are nice but would like to see a GPS added to them for convenience. Conditions were very good the day of play. Bunkers were all raked and in very good condition. Fairways and rough were cut and looked very nice. The greens were average speed (the board in the clubhouse said 8). I’d concur they were approximately that speed. Not overly quick, but not underwhelmingly slow either. I played at the LaCantera the week previously so Falconhead’s weren’t quite as quick. Hole variety isn’t lacking. Short par 4s. Long difficult ones. Up hill second shots seemed to be the tendency around the place. The trough bunkers were very neat and unique. Hole 8 may be the nicest par three landscaping and setting of any course anywhere. Enjoy! Overall a solid 4-5 star course worth the play if in the Austin area.

I live in the Midwest and played this course in late March with my daughter while on spring break. I really enjoyed the friendliness of that staff, particularly the starter. Good amenities, especially the practice area and the brisket sandwich, so don't be afraid to come early

There are no bad holes, but the course is not particularly memorable. You will notice that most photographs of this course show different angles of the same par 3. The course itself is not what I would call a canyon or quarry type layout, so beware.

There was rain two days before our round, so the course while rather firm was paths only. That made for a brutal pace so we bailed after just 9 holes. The conditioning was not great. Greens were on the slow side. Tee boxes and fairways were nice. Rough and bunkers were spotty. Too be fair the rain from earlier in the week may have kept the crews from being able to rake.

Falconhead is probably less than half the price of La Cantera or Barton Springs, so with that in mind, this is priced right and worth a visit.
